In the news: Richard Pryor, elephant lover?

According to his wife, Richard Pryor's favorite cause wasn't multiple sclerosis research, it was preventing cruelty to elephants. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) just named an award after him.

Well, how about that? Snip:
Pryor's wife says, 'Of all the issues Richard worked on over the years, cruelty to elephants was dearest to his heart. He felt for elephants who are robbed of their freedom and families and sent to circuses where they endure chains, bullhooks, and beatings or banished to zoos where they spend a lifetime of boredom, confined in small, concrete enclosures.'
